Hi All! My name is Nathan Bloechl and I am from Green Bay, Wisconsin. I am a freshman, and one of the three new bloggers for Luther College! I am entering my third week on campus as I reported two weeks early for Fall Football Camp! Reporting early has definitely gave me a slight advantage over other students. I know all the quick little shortcuts around campus and know the buildings like the back of my hand. I was very impressed by how many neat little activities that there were for the freshman during orientation weekend. It was a great way to get to know other kids in your position on a more personal level! This campus is so accepting and so friendly, it is truly remarkable. One of the reasons I decided to attend Luther (among many others) was that i felt at home and at ease on my many visits to Decorah. So far, everything has lived up to that billing. My teammates, my roommates, my neighbors, my floor-mates, my hall-mates, my classmates and the staff and faculty, have been so genuine and personable over my first couple of days as a Norse. I cannot wait to continue this outstanding tradition. As my head football coach Mike Durnin would say: "Be 1-0 Everyday in Every Way!"
